Hi,

is there a way to force Safari (preferably) or Firefox to switch automatically on any Website to the Mobile-View (which shows up on iPhones/Smartphones)? The iPad mini for my taste is just too small for normal Tablet/Desktop-Web-Content so I would like to use the mobile Version of every site – just like I would be using a huge iPhone. Are there any settings to achieve that?

I know that Safari in iOS 13 gives users the opportunity to use the Desktop-Version of every Website – but I want it the other way round and just use the Mobile/Smartphone-Version of every Website which I view on my iPad mini.

I meant: Does really no one know how to achieve this? Or is there no such feature? To my knowledge it isn't even possible to change the font-size in the iPad-version of Safari, which would also be a help to make Content more readable on the iPad mini.

Well, there is a toggle in the settings, you tried that already?

The contrary is true. Ipad mini will default to mobile view, you then have to manually switch to desktop view.
